This book is a gem for any cricket fan. Every Indian’s heart beat for cricket like nothing else. The fan following is crazy and it is followed like a religion where the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is worshipped as God. In every lane of every city you will find children playing cricket and dreaming to become a cricketer someday. Even I used to play as a child and my brother even wanted to get professional training but was unfortunately denied by my parents like most other Indian parents. This book brings back all those memories and makes you feel nostalgic. Many of the famous matches are described in this book and if you were born in the late 20th century then you are definitely going to enjoy reading. The language used is simple and easily understandable. Even the characters are very likeable. My favourite character is obviously Sat, his devotion and hard work to become a cricketer is really praiseworthy. Moreover the bond of friendship between three best friends is beautifully depicted. Also the ending speech along with being motivating is also emotional. I highly recommend this book to all the cricket fans out there.
